Think for a moment – have you ever heard about a cause that interested you, but then it left your mind before you were able to do anything about it? Don’t worry – it’s happened to all of us!

Hi – this is Kirsten Bullock again of Bullock Consulting and today I’ll be talking about an easy way to ensure this happens less frequently with your cause.

Don’t miss an opportunity to ask if they would like to receive updates about your work (and if your organization requires a double opt-in, make sure you mention to the individual that you’ll have them added, but they will need to keep an eye out for the initial email so they can complete the opt-in confirmation by clicking the link in the email.

That’s it for today. Thanks for joining me and I’ll see you next time!
